Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of New Arpad is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Emperor with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 27.986 billion New Arpadians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient New Arpadian economy, worth a remarkable 9,517 trillion Dimes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 340,096 Dimes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and up to 40% of voters can finally read the issues they're deciding on. Crime is totally unknown. New Arpad's national animal is the Eddie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Arpad is ranked 71,460th in the world and 53rd in European Union for Most Income Equality, scoring 37.58 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
